Subjunctive

You will find the verbs and experessions that are followed by the subjunctive in the ppt presentation attached. Your homework is there as well.

Note: Remember that some verbs that can be used in the subjunctive may follow a different syntax in less formal contexts. You must think about the meaning and the context of the sentences.

e.g His mother advised them to come home early.

Verb: advise,   Context: Mother speaking to children– informal

e.g It is advised that you should come to work dressed in a business suit.

Verb: advise,   Context: Regulation for employees- formal
